Seattle Real Estate Analysis

Seattle is the largest city in the Pacific Northwest.  The largest city (population) north of San Francisco and west of Chicago.  While there is just over 700,000 residents that live within the city limits there are nearly 4 million people that live in the metropolitan area.  Geographically, Seattle is only 84 square miles which is smaller than most major cities in the United States, for example, cities like Houston and Phoenix are well over 500 square miles and other major cities, New York (302 sq miles), Los Angeles (468 sq miles), Chicago (227 sq miles), Dallas (340 sq miles) are all much larger.

Seattle

Seattle is a seaport that sits on Elliott Bay of the Puget Sound while the east of Seattle is bordered by Lake Washington that runs the length of the city.   Seattle is a city of hills, Capitol Hill is just east of downtown, Queen Anne and Magnolia are just north while Beacon Hill and West Seattle are just south.  Downtown Seattle originally had more hills, but in the early 1900’s the Denny Regrade was razed to fill in part of Elliott Bay.  The area that was created is now the SoDo neighborhood.  Sodo contains much of Seattle’s light industrial district as well as being the home to several stadiums that house the Seattle Mariners, Seahawks, and Sounders.

Seattle

The first major industry of Seattle was logging, but then after World War II Seattle’s fortune was tied mainly to Boeing, aircraft manufacturing.  Since the 1980’s, Seattle has been a technology hub with the founding of Microsoft.  Other large companies such as Starbucks and Amazon also started in Seattle within recent memory.

Seattle real estate is very valuable because it is scarce (only 84 square miles and surrounded by water) and the economy is diverse and strong.  According to Zillow, the average home value in Seattle is over $750,000 in 2020.  While the average price in Seattle has over doubled since 2000, the homes on the Eastside are even more valuable.  Areas like Mercer Island, Medina, and Kirkland all have higher average home values than Seattle.
